Phil Kline's Unsilent Night Sunday December 11, 2011 FREE!

Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night is a free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CDs and MP3s, and played through a roving swarm of boomboxes carried through city streets every December. In an act of modern-day caroling, people bring their own boomboxes and drift peacefully through a shimmering cloud of yuletide sounds which is different from every listener's perspective. Since 1992, this 45-minute work has grown into a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations.

Join us this year for Edmonton's first Unsilent Night, as we lead a chorus of boomboxes from the Timms Centre at the U of A campus, down Whyte Avenue to Gazebo Park on 104 st. by the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market.

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own boomboxes, iPod speakers or other sound blasters. We will be handing out a limited number of boomboxes, as well as cassettes, CDs, and MP3 uploads for those who bring their own players. Check out http://www.unsilentnight.com/ or our Facebook event "Unsilent Night Edmonton" to RSVP or for more details.
